A very stylish new app to find your city’s best restaurants, tailored to your current cravings. Once you select your location, choose a destination based on neighborhood, cuisine and special requests. All of the suggestions are culled from food critics, bloggers and locals:
Since this app was designed around my photography (food styling by David Bouley), I am obviously a little biased when it comes to it’s look… However, it’s not only beautiful but also very useful and highly functional. Download it here for free. Covered cities: NYC, Chicago and San Francisco.
Happy to have my work chosen again for ‘American Photography’.

In the meantime, here’s a link to the gallery on AI-AP -> American Photography 30 / 2014.

Another demanding & fun liquid art campaign. To show the benefits of Nutrilite milkshakes, we were asked to shoot & create liquid body shapes. 40 gallons of Nutrilite chocolate & vanilla milkshake were poured, splashed, thrown and splattered along our custom made plexi rigs. Our well worn kiddie pool took another beating and the clean-up was epic. Thanks to Jiae, John & Kara for all their creative input, and to my fantastic team -> liquid stylist, botanical stylists, rig maker, assistant, digital tech and retoucher.
Lovely collaboration with New You Magazine for opening feature of ‘Beauty Now’. See full gallery -> here. Retoucher: Simon Eugster / Prop Stylist: Mark Borow / Assistant: Anton Vancamelbeke / Popsicle taster: Ellis K. Mueller. Sorry, no leftovers…
Here’s a quick preview of a cook book we’ve been working on this spring with a well known Swedish Chef… No, not that one -> this one! Linnea is just as funny, but actually knows how to cook. Not sure about her meatball tennis skills, though.
Working title of our project: Stay up late
Chapters and recipes all revolve around sharing a good meal & good drinks in good company.
A lot of dedication and testing went into this shoot for the Spring 2014 campaign of French cosmetics client L’Oréal, for Clarisonic’s Festival of Colors launch. From creating a custom rig (expertly built by Megan Caponetto) to using Kapture laser triggers and Bron high-speed flash, everything had to be adjusted perfectly to capture the initial stages of powder explosions. Many thanks to Megan, Tim, Logan, Tomo & Sasha for their help and input throughout the assignment. Once more, I could rely on the support of a great team to blow stuff up and enjoy it!
Not sure if we can go any bigger than what we did this time! Mark built three more fish for Costa, among them a Steelhead Salmon, a Bonefish and an 11 foot Bluefin Tuna. Check out the impressive ‘making of’ and the stills from this series. We’re now up to 8 fish. Still no CGI, still no digital imaging, just fantastic art direction, model making and a few lighting tricks up my sleeves to capture each of them in-camera, in a single shot.
